TWILIGHT ON THE RIO GRANDE

Gene Autry spanking Adele Mara from the 1947 film “Twilight on the Rio Grande”.  As TipTopper, who supplied this image says, it’s unusual for a film spanking as he is using what looks like a paddle, although is in fact a machete, not a common everyday instrument for the movies.

Actually Chross beat us both to it by a couple of weeks and you can see the full clip here. But the still is a good one as it captures Adele Mara’s face so well at the critical moment and I haven’t seen it before.

    Cowboys and spanking: “Where seldom is heard
    The use of a safe word
    And soon thighs
    Are wide open for play…”

    I dunno. It’s the best I could do on short notice. I hope at least one reader giggled a little bit.

    According to a professional acquaintance of the star, Autry said several years before his death that he had a 26-year-old mind in an 86-year-old body.
